I was looking for great ideas for Staind Glass Designs and I found it in 'Stained Glass (Design Sourcebook)'. The designs in this book are fresh, bold, colourful and simplistic, just what I wanted to see. I am using this book as a reference to illistrate the similarities between stained glass designs and silk painting possibilites. It has already proved to be a big inspiration.

Format: Hardcover
I highly recommend this book for a stained glass artist or anyone seeking to commission a stained glass piece for their home. The glass is painted, etched, & blown to create many stunning & unique effects.
Design themes include marine life, birds, animals, people, floral, religious & abstract. The book is filled with gorgeous color photos with captions for each window listing title, artist, size, & the glass types used.
I fell in love with a screen entitled "Waves" & one featuring sandblasted water nymphs. I also enjoyed another circular piece featuring the tree of life & flame. A huge abstract biblical window took my breath away.
There is a very helpful list of artists in the back. Contact information, pages their artwork is on & the kind of work they do is listed here. I find myself constantly looking to this book for inspiration & ideas.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ms. S. P. Dixon on 10 Mar. 2005
Format: Hardcover
Although the title suggests a reference book for crafters, it really will appeal to anybody who appreciates clever design. It is a gallery of work by some of our finest contemporary stained glass artists. Text is kept to a minimum and the pictures are well-organised into categories from figurative and abstract designs to the religious (or as the author has it, in a lovely double negative, "non-secular").
 The selection is incredibly varied in style from traditional to avant garde. A big bonus is that the pictures for each double-page spread have been so carefully chosen to compliment each other. The overall effect is stunning and excellent value - around twenty pounds for 130 hard-backed colour pages.
